Martin Perez has discomfort in left elbow. Will miss at least one start and have an MRI.

— Anthony Andro (@aandro) May 11, 2014

Perez had a streak of 28 scoreless innings in April. Since that was snapped, he’s allowed 19 runs in three starts. Ominous stuff considering the amount of Tommy John surgeries that have been performed in 2014.

Perez, 23, is under contract with the Rangers through 2017 and has options for 2018, 2019, and 2020.

Nick Tepesch was scratched from his outing Sunday at Triple-A and could be on the way to the majors.
